Darn, I Missed It!!

THANKS to Melissa C. for sending a link to a preview of the latest issue of Maniac Magazine - DEC / JAN (the magazine of Pittsburgh's young professionals) featuring Max Talbot who is also the cover boy AND Brooks Orpik.

This is not only Max's first cover but it's also the first time that an athlete has been on the cover of this magazine in the seven years of it's existence.

To celebrate the release of the magazine and to raise money for charity (some things I read said it was benefitting Talbot's "Gervais-Talbot Charities;" however, it actually benefitted the Red Cross), Max hosted a "Wild" party at Bossa Nova in Pittsburgh on December 14th ... totally missed this one!!! Team mates Jordan Staal and Tyler Kennedy were in attendance to show their support.

Thank you for posting this--What a nice way to start the day! I somehow imagined Max's chest to be a bit hairier...lol

My computer shouldn't be functioning right now due to the huge amount of drool that is on it from this post. Don't get me wrong, my love for Max Talbot borders on creepy but I was more intrigued by the brooks pics just because he doesn't seem like the type to agree to something like this. He is so scary looking on the ice that I never realized that he is a good looking guy.

I read the words "Jordan Staal" and "Wild Party", and I instantly forgot what the rest of the post was about. LOL

ummmm yea... I'm not sure I can function for at least an hour. I'm not a huge Max fan, but those pictures were HOT!

I'm going to be completely useless for the rest of the day. I've stared so long at these pictures that they're permanently burned into my brain.

Given Max's manly ability to grow a fierce beard, you'd expect him to be hairier elsewhere, but he surprisingly isn't. If you've seen shirtless pictures or him in shorts... it's unexpected. But that picture of him unbutton the shirt... I know what I'll be dreaming of tonight!

I need to go find some paper towels now.

My lord, he looks pretty good all dressed like that. I'm sitting here at school and I opened it up and my mouth kinda dropped. :)
@ Life_As_A_Redhead, Kenya I TOTALLY am with you. I also just saw "Jordan Staal" and just started thinking of how beautiful he is haha.

Val said...

You post this, and expect us to function for the rest of the day...ARE.YOU.KIDDING?

Stephanie said...

WOW - what a response to the post!!! I didn't expect it, but then again, Maxy is the 'superstar' (not to mention 'ladies man!')!!!!

I didn't think my computer was loading the "flip book" right because I didn't see anything about Brooksy, so if one of you wouldn't mind emailing me those pics ... I would GREATLY APPRECIATE IT!!!!

: )

Max is my favorite (non goalie) Pen.

JustAWriter said...

Love the post....

I tried to read the article from the flip book but it didnt work so well...so if there is another way for me to read it...since I live in NC getting the magazine is kinda hard for me...

I would love to read the whole story somehow...

Oh, no! It's that sweater again!! ;-) Wasn't there a picture posted a while back with Tanger, a couple ladies and Max, who was wearing that sweater? Too funny.

You gotta love Max! Especially when he says that the only thing he needs from his family at Christmas is their love. Awww...

Ashlen said...

The best time to wear a striped sweater, is all the timeeee!
hahahha oh spongebob flashback.

looking good max ;)

Sunshine36616 said...

Justawriter, I had a hard time,too. I could never get to the Brooks stuff. If you follow the link you will see a "go to" button. Type in 16, that's where Brooks' stuff starts. I was able to see all of Max's stuff pretty easily without this trick.

*sigh* I love Max.

pinkpinkpinapple said...

omg im speechless. HOT. max has beautiful eyes and a beautiful body :) Hahaha wish i was at that "wild" party hahaha! great post as always!!

xstevieraex said...

...EEP...Ok I am definatly not a huge Max fan but Daym! I'm pretty sure I stopped breathing there for a sec...

EHisCDN said...

Ahahaha his pic on the flip book with the shades is hilarious!

Leah Marie said...

Does Max have a tattoo in the picture where he is flexing or am I just imagining things?

mtfree said...

Yes, LeahMarie, there is a tattoo there on Max's arm. All the Talbot kids in his generation (there is 9 of them in total) all have a T tattooed somewhere on their bodies.

CrackerLilo said...

@ mtfree: Thanks! I wondered what that was.

Talbot has interesting tastes in sweaters, but I'm sure some of you ladies think they'd look just fine on your bedroom floors. ;-)

Amy said...

i think i just might love him a little bit..

EyeHeartCandy said...

First I see Brooksie lookin' sexy as HELL, then I scroll down and see this! My head is going to explode and now I have to figure out how to re-attach my lower jaw! Thanks...
